flying manhole covers – Elizabeth, NJ

Here at Mintz & Geftic we usually try to blog about legal news that our clients and other readers might find valuable. Whether it’s information about workers’ compensation, motor-vehicle accidents, class action litigation or medical malpractice, a majority of our blog posts are typically law-related . However, this is not one of those posts.

Since we have been Elizabeth’s neighborhood law firm for over 30 years, when a local news story is discussed nationwide, we like to chime in. Many of our local readers are well aware that Elizabeth experienced a couple of explosions this past Wednesday that caused two different manhole covers to fly into the air. One flew 20 feet in the air and the other 25 feet!!!

Officials indicated that the flying manhole covers were a result of underground fires that resulted from an electric valve explosion. The salt and ice used to treat icy roads got underground and ate away at the wires and cables until these fires started. First and foremost, fortunately no one was injured from these huge covers flying high into the air. Someone managed to get a cell-phone video of the second explosion, which you can check out below.
